Using transboundary wildfire exposure assessments to improve fire management programs: a case study in Greece - Palaiologou P, Ager AA, Nielsen-Pincus M, Evers CR, Kalabokidis K.

Numerous catastrophic wildfires in Greece have demonstrated that relying on fire suppression as the primary risk-management strategy is inadequate and that existing wildfire-risk governance needs to be re-examined. In this research, we used simulation mode...

We present a case in which emergency medical services (EMS) intervened on a critically ill child with known giant coronary aneurysms as sequela to her severe complicated Kawasaki disease. This patient's severe shock ultimately ended in cardiac arrest and death. We discuss the keys to recognition, and critical importance to early intervention of pediatric shock in prehospital care. We also detail the cardiac ramifications of Kawasaki disease, steps for prompt identification of high risk complaints in these patients, and opportunities for treatment.

Cosmetic devices using non-ionizing radiation (NIR) are increasingly available for people who wish to modify their appearance for aesthetic purposes. There are a wide range of NIR modalities used for cosmetic procedures, including devices that use optical radiation (laser, intense pulsed light, and light-emitting diode), electromagnetic fields, and ultrasound. Common procedures involving the application of NIR include epilation, skin rejuvenation, body sculpting and contouring, treatment of vascular and skin lesions, tattoo removal, and scar reduction. The majority of research on the use of NIR cosmetic devices has focused...
